We are Open for Business!

We are very excited to announce that the new study spaces on the Lower Ground Floor are now open!

We know how hard it can be to find a study spot, so we listened to our students and added 358 new study spaces to the Main Library over the summer, as this blog has documented. Today we celebrated the grand opening of the Lower Ground Floor, which has been renovated for student use.


Bryan MacGregor, Director of User Services and Alec Edgecliffe-Johnson, President of the Edinburgh University Students’ Association, did the honours, cutting the ribbon to officially open the new spaces.


In the coming weeks we will be running competitions in the new space, so keep your eye on our Facebook and Twitter for the chance to win prizes! We would also love to hear your feedback about the new spaces, and about any further changes you want to see in the Library, so please get in touch via Facebook or Twitter, or use the survey forms we will be distributing in the Lower Ground Floor.

We hope that these new study spaces will make the upcoming deadlines a little easier!


Nearly there!

Everything is almost ready for the study spaces on the Lower Ground Floor of the Main Library to open, we just have a few last minute things to put in place for you and the space will be open to students on Monday 17th October.

 All of the new furniture has been delivered and the new desktop power outlets have been put in place to make your studying here as easy as possible.


We’ve got new signs on the lower ground floor directing you to the space too!


Come and see the space on Monday and let us know what you think!
